Soul Twin Form
Relationship with the Host: Parasitic twin seems to differ almost entirely from host. Relations and interactions between the two are unpredictable, ranging from logical and civil cooperation to volatile conflict. Host has been found with severe symptoms of conflict (nosebleeds and intense migraines as well as occasional loss of consciousness) as often as he is found working fairly with his twin to solve a problem. When cooperating, results are considerable: we suspect high intelligence present in the twin as well as the host. When at odds, consequences have been frightening.
Personality: Intelligent, vengeful and quick-tempered, emotionally dynamic, unpredictable. Action-oriented. Displays tenderness toward children and an intense hatred of those he deems ‘cruel.’ Host claims twin to be both very similar and very different to himself. Host has been recorded describing himself and the twin as ‘two sides of the same coin,’ and referring to the twin as his ‘alter ego.’ Host denied latter statement in later years, deeming such a claim to be ‘childish.’
Notes: As a toddler, host nicknamed the twin ‘Twitch.’ Host claims this to have stemmed from the twin’s erratic personality and ‘jitters.’ In later childhood, host renamed twin to ‘Shadow,’ claiming that the twin resembled himself, except with dark hair and grey skin, and different eyes (one black, one white). In teenage years, host named the twin Mitchell, though host claims that he did not choose the name, and that the twin simply told him.
Host retains the idea that his identical twin possesses black hair and monochromatic eyes, as well as darker skin than himself, and will not entertain naysayers.
Host is afflicted with Type II Waardenburg Syndrome. Results of affliction include bright, heterochromic eyes and congenital deafness in both ears, hypo pigmented patches of skin and a white forelock of hair on the left side. Host insists that his twin is not deaf, and alerts him of sounds. Experts have argued the possibility of the statement, but observations have been made of the host acknowledging sounds (in a delayed manner) which he would otherwise not be aware of. Host does say that twin possesses a white forelock and patches of hypo pigmented skin, identical to his own. Host can speak, however speech is slow and slurred, and he prefers using writing or sign language. Insists that he ‘hears’ his twin speak in his mind, but it is not yet understood what the host considers to be ‘hearing.’
